HELSINKI – “We need brands to scale” – that was the rallying cry of Petri Alava, CEO of Finnish post-consumer textile waste recycling business, Infinited Fiber Company (IFC) at an online open day. The company this week presented the digital, interactive presentation as an alternative to a previously planned physical open day which had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.
As well as used cotton garments, IFC’s technology can also digest other cellulose based materials, like cardboard and paper waste. The company is already manufacturing fibre from post-consumer textile waste at its pilot plant in Finland at a rate of 50 tons per year and is building another 500-ton mill to provide more fibres for global fashion brand test and capsule collections.
